The Book of County Tipperary by George Henry Bassett

We recently received the following recommendation from one of our visitors who thinks it would make great 
reading for our website viewers and some folk in Borrisoleigh whose ancestors maybe mentioned. 
It is composition of notes taken from a writer who toured Irish towns and took notes. Offering amazing insights into the concerns of the day for Borrisoleigh folk in 1889.

The girls of St Joseph’s Borrisoleigh are eagerly preparing for two Munster finals over the next two weekends. First up is the intermediate final versus Presentation Mitchelstown on Saturday February 2nd in Mitchelstown at 12pm. The girls lost out at the semi final stage of this competition last year to Croom, and with little change to team personnel hopes are high that silverware will make its way to Borrisoleigh. A win against Ennis Community College in the semi-final back in November along with the  junior team progressing steadily has helped build a great sense of expectation in the school. This team is led by Ciara Maher, Aisling Dwyer (both Thurles Sars) along with Borrisoleigh’s Ciara Doolan, Cliona O Connell, Aoife Ryan, Mairead Maher,  Hazel Reynolds (Silvermines) and Sarah Seymour (Kildangan).
The junior team will play Salesian College Pallaskenry in the final in Borrisoleigh on Saturday February 9th. The juniors had a comprehensive win against St. Annes Tipperary town in the semi-final, and after being beaten in the final of this competition by Cahir last year the girls are determined to make amends for that defeat.  Borrisoleigh  camogie club have been doing great work underage in the last few years with Danielle Ryan, Laura Young, Jane Delaney, Katie Fitzgerald, Emma Doolan and Emma Galvin getting great back up from Templederry natives/ Silvermines club players Miriam Murphy, Caoimhe Carey , Anna Stapleton, Maria Moroney.  Aoife Dwyer, Anna Grace, Louise McGrath Dunne and Grainne McLoughlin have shown true grit and determination through all the games and if all the girls play to their full capabilities they are a truly formidable outfit.
We would like to take this opportunity on behalf of the school to wish the girls the very best of luck.  Please come along and support the girls.
